's coming. they tell me it's coming. harry reid one of them. "b." ten others received "a" by the nra. kimberly, if the people are getting "as" and "b"s by the nra do you think they will vote to change the constitution in the way president obama wants them to? >> kimberly: absolutely not. the nra poke the cage and super mad. this is all out war. they are not taking it sitting down. tremendous support. record number of people joining, giving money. look at the number of gun sales, ammunition sales. everything that is going on. thaw have this in their respect. if they want to hold on to the position, they have to tread carefully. >> bob: the same nra that used obama's children disgustingly. max baucus, i did his first campaign for the united states senate. he is from montana. i understand -- >> kimberly: did he win? >> bob: obviously, he wouldn't be up there. >> kimberly: you brought him in? >> bob: i did. that is not the point. baucus will vote against more than ten bullets in the clip. >> dana: they will never have a chance to vote on it. >> eric: i 100%, 1,000% agree. i don't think r
to do a budget. harry reid and patty she said i'm the chairman of the committee and the jimmy buffet song, if the phone doesn't ring, it must be me. waiting-- >> one of the observations i had today and i thought my colleague charles krauthammer had a good point. obama laid down the gauntlet gave the most liberal partisan speech i can think of in our lifetime. now, and almost he wants to destroy or wipe out the reagan legacy or reaganism with massive big government, social engineering. do you think he'll be successful in this term accomplishing that? >> well, that's our job in the house, to stop this. and think about sort of the outrageous language in the president's speech today. when he wants it talk about social justice, well, darn it, a job is the ultimate social justice. and yet, the policies of this administration have crushed the ability to expand this, this economy. so, how do we now in the house start to use what leverage points we have to force the senate to finally engage in the process of doing what's right? and mr. waldon and i talked about it in the past i think the sena
aren't the ones blocking this. the democrats aren't the ones -- >> speaker reid, harry reid, the leader of the senate, he's all on board for this, right? just want to make sure. >> i think leader reid is fine with it. in fact, they put out a statement supporting what the president did today. >> in two years, republicans and democrats are going to be measured at the ballot box. a lot is going to happen but the biggest thing that is going to happen is we're going to have time to see what works. not more false promises. >> nothing works, alex. >> is the president, for example, going to start enforcing the laws that we already have? his attorney general doesn't want -- >> cookie cutter -- >> why is the nra and its supporters so much more effective politically than the other side in dealing with this issue? >> poke be with me with a stick. money. >> why are there democrats -- and the antigun types, they have a lot of -- >> no, they are not. i'll give this to my republican friends. they are always better organized on the issues like this and they raise the money and the nra is effective in sc
's time for the senate to lead. on climate change, let harry reid to see if they can do something. it's their turn. let the senate pass a budget. on guns, i'd be interested to see if they can pass a an obama-style coalition to do what the president is asking for. that's a big change. the house, one of the things they need to do smarter is not see a plank and swim with sharks. let harry reid lead and see what they can do. i think the president will have a lot fewer followers than he thinks. >> harry reid is as able senate leader. i love seeing him lead. it's interesting that ari is counseling at least on tv counseling republicans not to lead. look, that's easy for the republicans. they used to say -- ari and i are both baseball fans. the house controlled by the republicans are where good ideas go to die and that's apparently what speaker boehner is being advised to do now. i think it's a terrible mistake. he could come and make deals and meet the president halfway but it looks like i think they are going to go back to their constructionism. that's not a good strategy. >> all right. we'
, the senate majority leader harry reid didn't fully embrace the house plan. he also didn't say no either. but over at the white house, well, they are saying the president would sign it. >> the bill still has to overcome some concerns expressed by members of the house and the senate before it can pass both chambers and reach the president's desk. if it does, and it reaches the president's desk, he would not stand in the way of the bill becoming law. >> if the president is not going to block it that would seem to add pressure on senator reid to take it up and act on it and that may force a budget to get done before long. shep? >> shepard: see what happens. mike emanuel on capitol hill. thanks. a good day for your 401 k. the dow and s&p 500 both closed at five year high. while the nasdaq went up 8 points. it's the seventh time the s&p has closed at a five year high just this year. hopes that congress will raise that debt ceiling and some really better than expected earnings reports helped fuel the gains today. google beat analyst's expectations and that helped push its shares up about 5% in
like majority leader harry reid. a lot of things in there are not that controversial. some of the stuff is going to be a hard row, tough sledding. he wants the assault weapons back. he wants under seven bullets in any gun. military-style weapons banned. that's just the beginning. >>gretchen: he also talks about health professionals. he reminds people that in obamacare doctors can ask questions about whether or not there are firearms in your home. there are mental health initiative as part of these 23 things. one thing that critics pointed out that's missing is there doesn't appear to be anything about hollywood's role in any of this with regard to violent video games. a lot of people are saying hollywood tends to be a friend of president obama, so could that be why that's missing in this. >>steve: you look at the town with the biggest gun problems now is chicago. a big magazine has nothing to do with handguns, the number-one killer in chicago. the assault weapons has nothing to do with handguns. not only that, senator marco rubio says it simply will not work because criminals always fig
to pull up. these are 11 democratic senators with a or b ratings with the nra, including harry reid said, well i think this will be a little difficult. the president might want to think twice the way he approaches it. i'm mara phrasing it but. >> [ra is bipartisan group of millions of americans want to protect the second amendment and aproves from many senators and house members. hear them smeared as extremists is ridiculous. they have constitutionally to then together to protect their rights. the legislative hurdle is high. that is why he came out with the executive orders. i think he blinked a little bit frankly. a lot of them things should have been doing four years, i don't know, appointings atf director or prosecuting gun crimes. he promises to do more even though gun prosecutions gone down 40% since the bush administration. the question is are the things dearest to his heart, assault weapons ban, are they going to help with something like newtown or something just for show? the fact is, in connecticut there was an assault weapons ban in place. the fact is, that for columbine, there
in the capitol the president, speaker john boehner, majority leader harry reid and a few others. you can imagine what the atmosphere will be like given a lot of words that have flown back and work, particularly between speaker boehner and majority leader reed. for a little more insight on all this, i contacted andy card, president george bush's first white house chief of staff. he was here the day of the inauguration back in 2001 and told me he expects there may be a bit of a similar atmosphere to that of 12 years ago. here's what he told me. >> i suspect it will probably be a lot like the atmosphere that george w. bush experienced in his first term of office. it was a little bit chilly and cold, but at the same time, you can't help but be wrapped up in the excitement of an inauguration. >> andy card also told me he was one of those republicans, although he didn't support president obama, he was very excited for historic reasons about his inauguration back in 2009. i have spoken to a number of republicans over the past few days about the excitement of the inauguration. they all said they will be
